On the most basic level, we look for flaws in construction, sinkholes around the property, and problematic soil conditions. Mistakes made during the building process can lead to foundation damage that would not otherwise occur. Voids created by plumbing leaks or erosion can cause sinkholes that leave the slab and foundation walls unsupported. Problematic soil conditions can lead to a variety of foundation issues. Clay rich soils can expand when wet and can exert enormous amounts of pressure on slabs and foundation walls, whereas weaker soils with poor load-bearing capacity can cause them to sink. This can lead to the need for foundation crack repair or other forms of foundation repair.
Basement Technologies® has been using polyurethane and epoxy injections successfully, problems can develop over time. Concrete walls and soil expand and contract, which can generate the need for further repair. Basement Technologies® saw the need to go a step further and develop a “fool proof” method for foundation crack waterproofing. The Techni-Crack® process eliminates the need for further repairs and provides a lifelong solution. The hydrophobic compound applied to the back of the membrane repels any water quickly and efficiently directs it to the system below. It has proven to be the only infallible method available on the market today. We at Story basement Technologies are a licensed dealer and are able to allow our customer this same great product.
